Fine print



What is the fine print?

Simply put it refers to disclosures or terms & conditions and important information that is not included in the main body of the document and placed in footnotes.

One must be careful not to miss the fine print before proceeding to any agreement etc. The reader is more influenced by the attractive offer rather than concentrating on the fine print at the bottom.

Is ‘fine print’ deceptive?

Why it should be in an unreadable format or difficult to read and one has to use a magnifying lens on occasion?

I don’t know.

Readers may help me to understand this philosophy.

The fine print in a love relationship

“To put it another way, every love relationship is based upon unwritten conventions rashly agreed upon by the lovers during the first weeks of their love.

On the one hand, they are living a sort of dream;

on the other, without realizing it, they are drawing up the fine print of their contracts like the most hard-nosed of lawyers.

O, lovers! Be wary during those perilous first days! If you serve the other party breakfast in bed, you will be obliged to continue the same in perpetuity or face charges of animosity and treason!” 

Milan Kundera
